Aug 1, 2017 - Malta, Montana Dinosaur Haven !

The 183 mile drive from Shelby to Malta, Montana was pretty easy, a little head wind held us back some but easy. We arrived and checked into the Edgewater Motel and RV. It sits on the edge of the Milk River which is on the west side of town. We didn't know it before but on our day of touring here we found out this has some rich history of several types. Before get into all that, first, the RV Park. It's small has great utilities, pull through spaces, almost are shaded by towering cottonwoods. The owners are sprucing up the place with new...

Jul 6, 2016 - July 4 - Havre, MT to July 6 Malta, MT

Well this trip is moving right along now!!! We are making amazing miles per day now that we are east of the Mountains!! Each day is almost the same, we are able to absolutely fly along the roads, sometimes reaching 26mph as the prevailing wind continue to live up to it reputation and push us along from behind. The terrain sounds like it is down hill, and I guess it is, but it is not the incredible 6% grade that we encountered after crossing passes in the mountains. We are generally losing altitude, but the road looks dead flat. We cannot...

Going West 2014

Jul 17, 2011 - Beatin' Feet Through Montana

Left St. Mary, Montana (Glacier NP) this morning and have driven through a lot of nothing. Huge green ranches and lots of cows. Just a couple miles from where we started this morning (on the Blackfeet reservation) we slowed to take photos of several wild horses. There was even a colt amidst the bunch of maybe eight horses. One horse was a dark mahogany coat and almost a pure white mane--absolutely beautiful Was so nice to see them running free but one almost got hit by a car. That is not so good. It is warm out and we are back in shorts...

Jul 16, 2009 - Malta, MT

We decided to stay on US 2 rather than drop further south to an interstate. We’re in the mood to explore small towns rather than visit big national parks with lots of people. For over a hundred miles we drove through mountain valleys with the occasional small town or ranch. Gradually this gave way to vast plains that Lewis and Clark covered. In total we covered 326 miles today, a long one for us, and stayed in a little park by the river—about 600 ft from a railroad track. The trains were frequent but we slept through them! There’s a lot of...

Jul 3, 2009 - Day on the road

We drove from Watford City, ND to Malta, MT today. The campground in Malta had small sites and a well used train rail right behind it. Luckily the train didn't use the whistle when running behind the campground, but the RV shook and we heard the roar of the train every time one came through. We stayed up late playing Wii with a couple we had met in the Apostle Islands. We had been trying to find a place to camp together again since we are both headed in the same direction. This part of Montana looks like northern North Dakota - lots of...

Jun 30, 2008 - Day 49 - back in Montana

Today we left Calgary about 9:30 A.M. We continued on Hwy 1 east to the Deerfoot Trail Hwy – south. We stopped at the Milk River, Alberta visitors center and ate our lunch there. It was before the boarder and they have a nice visitors center for people coming into Canada. At the boarder, the only trouble I had was finding a receipt for the wine Lesley and I bought in Alaska. Since I couldn't find the receipt right away, they asked to see the wine to see where it came from. That worked, but they said on my next trip to Alaska, keep the...

Jun 23, 2008 - Truckin into Montana, Big Sky Country

Jumped up about 6:15 to get going on another day. Nice and sunny but clouded up shortly. Took our time getting out of the CG what with this pooter business checking e-mails, entering addresses and all. Took a short stroll around and took off at 9:15. Wasn’t long before was sunny again. This part of North Dakota is fairly rolling, everything is green and lush looking. All the planted fields are coming up nice. Some haying going on. Today was really just a day of truckin. Ya gotta put in the hours to make the miles. Stopped for lunch in...

May 18, 2008 - Across Montana

Bad information. It's not Memorial Day. It's this coming weekend. My DW (RV lingo for dear wife) got some bad info or she just made it up, I'm not sure. Another tough day driving into head winds. I'm starting to think this is normal weather for the west. We ended up in Malta, Montana at The Edgewater Inn and RV Park. Nice except the RV park was almost under a train trestle over a river and every time a freight train went past we shook. But the choices were limited. Marilyn thought it was OK because they had an indoor pool. We'll see what...
